: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, since obamacare implementation began on october 1, the president has spent much f his time talking about the malfunctioning website. however, i would remind the president of his own words several weeks ago. obamacare is more than just a website. the website was supposed to be the easy part. and the more people sign on to it, they will be made aware of the real problems with obamacare. in fact, when the millions of americans currently losing their health care plans try to log on will be care.gov, they met with drastically increased emiums, skyrocketing out-of-pocket cost, and reduced access to the doctors and hospitals they know. these problems are in direct contrast to the repeated promises made by the president. my constituents are rightly concerned with these broken promises and they are regularly contacting me and my office to voice their concerns. for instance, gillian in sparta, tennessee, wrote to me, and i quote, every year in the past my health care insurance has increased by small percentages. sometimes 5%, sometimes by 7%. this past week
to this little soliloquy she does where essentially she's saying that obamacare is a racist term. watch. >> i want to talk today about a controversial word. it's a word that has been with us for years. like it or not it's indelibly printed in the pages of american history, a word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame, divide and demean. the world was conceived by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man to render themselves unequal. you all know the word i'm talking about. obamacare. that's right. i said it and i'm not ashamed and neither is president obama. >> president obama who actually uses the term obamacare. there she is painting it to be another word -- it's obamacare. you can't really call it the affordable care act because as we've learned today, it's not affordable. >> remember hillary clinton had a plan. it was called hillary plan. was that antiwomen. remember when reagan's economic plan came forward, including david stockman was upset about it. they called it reagonomics. what about nick -- nixonan
think. good morning, everyone. trying to attract youngsters to the obamacare cause, the president suggests pep rallies and happy hour parties. beneath the office of the president? the approach is not working, young people are not signing up, young people don't like it. the administration will not guarantee security. your i.d. is going astray. obamacare is sliding ever deeper into chaos, but apple, the exact opposite. it signed a deal that opens up the fast china smart phonee market and the stock is going straight up almost like the good old days. don't ignore the good news, 3.6% economic growth in the summer quarter. jobless claims below 300,000, but wouldn't you know it, stocks are down. stay right there, i'm also going to make some waves later this hour over the martin bashir disgrace.

of 277 times. >>> meantime 29,000 people have enrolled for healthcare on the revamped obamacare web site that's a drop in the bucket compared to the millions who have had their plans canceled. as the deadline to sign up is getting closer the web site still has major flaws. elizabeth prann has the latest for us. >> during one hearing yesterday we unearthed more immediate and long-term challenges that americans face in finding affordable healthcare coverage. those who testified say the administration's proposal to allow people to keep their existing coverage this won't work. states like washington and others are giving orders to allow folks back on old healthcare plans they argue it creates uncertainty and destructi destruction -- disruption. >> access to 50 percent of the number of specialists they offer in their older plans that are being canceled. it will be harder to get access to a doctor and probably hard to get access to the doctors you used to go see. >> the same day the president pushed a message in direct contradiction at a white house youth summit he pleaded with young supporter
. -- i blame cavuto. if it's bad, it's cavuto. >> ca-ching, ca-ching, the new obamacare girl. winning a contest aimed at getting young people to sign up, telling them not to worry about the price tag. good thing she isn't because it's looking like the rest ofy . >> go ahead and sing it up but young people still ain't signing up, and as the new poll is any indication they won't be anytime soon. the polls finding only 22% of young people, the so-called millenials, plan to sign up at all. 51% think healthcare costs will go up due to the law and one out of ten things the costs will go down. that's a downer for the president, pushing hard to get the young folks signed up. hadley says it's going to be a hard sell. this is a group he has to win over and he is not. >> right. the last thing that millenials need at this point is another two-minute video with song and dance or pretty graphics. we need real information about our options and i believe that when those facts come to light, when people know what their options are in 2014, those facts are very discouraging, and as you mentioned the ha
a series of improvements when it comes to obamacare. >> in fact, kathleen sebelius is writing the pages of "usa today" today that when we launched the website we messed up, but we fixed it. we made dramatic improvements. essentially that is what jeff zeints, the director of office of management and budget has been brought ton fix things. there he was at an event. we took a picture of him. he was live yesterday doing a conference call where it's interesting. he says the site is fixed but maybe you should use it when not many people are using the site. here he is. >> bottom line, healthcare.gov on december 1 is night and day from where it was on october 1. to be clear, there likely will be times that even with this increased capacity that that increased capacity will not be sufficient to handle peak demands. so to prepare for those times when spikes in user volume outstrip the system's expanded capacity, we will deploy a new queuing system to serve consumers in an orderly fashion and to allow consumers to request e-mail notifications when it's a better time to come back to the site. >> a
they worked so hard to pass. >> so his staff does not have to have obamacare? >> right. maybe that's the promise that he was talking about in terms of keeping it. but he then, with all that going on, he continued to spin himself in language over this promise that we know has been broken. take a listen. >> remember what the president said. if you like your insurance, you can keep it. there is nobody in america america -- we've had three different years. they all have policies for only one year. i still go back and say what i said earlier. what he said was true. if you want to keeppthe insurance you have, you can keep it. >> what is wrong with him? >> you know what? he proves that rob ford is not the only north american politician who is out of his mind, because that has so been debunked. meanwhile, senator joe manchin, a colleague of mr. reid, says maybe we should delay obamacare. keep in mind, he's a democrat. he is swimming upstream against the other democrats. here's joe. >> let's have a transitional year and see if we can make these things work. if we give it our best try and we
the talk we have had up until now has been about premiums that people pavement president claimed obamacare would save the family $2,500 a year he was talking about premiums. that didn't happen. and now we're fining that people are getting into really high deductibles, $5,000, $10,000, $12,000 for a couple, and when that happens, if you're a couple and you have to pay a $10,000 deductible and you don't have a big health crisis during a year, you're paying for all of your healthcare costs under obamacare, and people are saying, wait a minute. this is not what we thought would happen. >> what is interesting -- you're quite right, we have been focusing on what's my premium questioning to look like, but when you go to the car deal and he gives you a monthly payment and it doesn't factor in the fact you have to pay more up front to get the monthly payment, and then the buyer's remorse. do we get to the point where we'll get buyers to have remorse or just throw up their hands and look elsewhere? >> we haven't gotton to the point where enough people have new policies policies and are experiencing

[laughter] fine witht i am calling obamacare, the president is fine with it. we are focused on making sure that the care part is delivered to the americans that want it. whether it is the affordable care act, obamacare, or anything else, what matters to the president is that the benefits available to every american who gets covered through the exchanges, or have covered all the -- already, is delivered. or one of us who has insurance coverage already has benefits from the afford will care act, from obamacare. child between 18 and 26, that child is now able to stay on your insurance coverage, where before they were not. there are benefits when it comes insurers,bility of because of the afford will care act, throw you off the plan because of a pre-existing condition. benefits that will kick in once the exchanges cake and will be long. we are focused on the care and m

questions. what are your thoughts on obamacare? [laughter] too many questions. i had to ask you three. >> i may need a couple hours. it is unraveling on its own effects. i was telling jonathan that i think it is not that government is inherently stupid, although that is a debatable point. [laughter] it is that they do not get the right incentives. the business would be run this way because you would be run out of business immediately. we have put into law perverse incentives. people who had cheap insurance no longer can buy that. it is what they could afford and that is the only way they had it. i was one of them. i used to have family coverage for five people, for $5,000. a $5,000 deductible. in obamacare, you can have a higher detectable and still pay $20,000 because there is a mandate built into it. the problem is the insurance company is never going to offer those policies again because they are told within a year, if you delay it for year, then in a year everyone will be forced to buy the new policies, which are more expensive. let's say you sell bread and you sell for a dollar a loaf,

of obamacare has to do with a long- standing observation and a plan around it that we need young people to enroll. oft is true regardless the affordable care act. it was always going to be true. it was always going to be important. it was always the case, as i think we have discussed here in this room. younger people are more likely to wait to later stages of the enrollment process to enroll. this is part of a broader effort that we will be undertaking to make sure that americans around the country understand the advantages of having insurance and the need to have it and all of the options available to them. i will leave it to folks on the political side who have looked at that. we are in pretty stark disagreement with some of the polls, particularly on youth and the afford will care act. there are good polls and apples. -- and bad polls. debate?ere a fear of basically, the percentage of americans who want to repeal the affordable care act has not changed at all. i think that speaks to the kind of entrenched political nature of this debate over the past several weeks. it is always been
